Representative Text

1 O Herre Krist, gak ikke bort,
Bliv hos os nu, det kvælder fort!
Kom ind og mig den Glæde gjør,
Træd indenfor mit Huses Dør!

2 Lad dig nu bede, det er sent!
Du ser, det hjertelig er ment,
Og veed, du fremfor alle mest
Er mig saa hjertenskjær en Gjest.

3 Du veed, hvor det med mig er fat,
Det stunder til dein forte Nat,
Saa maa ei du, som Lyset er,
Forlade mig i Mørket her.

4 Lys op, at jeg kan finde frem
Til Herberg mit og Himmel-Hjem,
At Syndemørkets Nat og Nid
Mig ei forvilder hid og did!

5 Særdeles i min sidste Nød
Hjælp du mig til en salig Død!
O Herre, bliv, jeg slipper dig
Ei, før du faar velsignet mig!

In some hymnals, the editors noted that a hymn's author is unknown to them, and so this artificial "person" entry is used to reflect that fact. Obviously, the hymns attributed to "Author Unknown" "Unknown" or "Anonymous" could have been written by many people over a span of many centuries. Go to person page >
